Despite advance warnings, Portland Police Bureau officers were powerless to stop another night of rioting, arson, and gunfire carried out by Antifa. Rioters set multiple fires and engaged in drive-by gunfire.
Antifa rioters set an Apple Store on fire Friday night during the third declared riot in five days. The fire was one of the multiple fires Portland police officers were powerless to prevent.
Portland Police Bureau officials issued a warning Friday night that a planned “Direct Action” by Antifa could lead to a “high fire danger.”

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

Apple getting a little of their come uppance.

:singing:


snip:

Apple CEO Tim Cook on Thursday penned a letter in support of the Black Lives Matter movement in the US.

In the post titled ‘Speaking up on Racism’ which is available on the company’s website, the Apple CEO said that the company must do more to combat racism. “While our laws have changed, the reality is that their protections are still not universally applied. We’ve seen progress since the America I grew up in, but it is similarly true that communities of color continue to endure discrimination and trauma,” he wrote in the post.

I differentiate between BLM and Antifa as organizations with differing goals and somewhat overlapping tactics.  I think  BLM is more interested in money (extortion) than is Antifa.

Good read. 

The Ideologies of ANTIFA and BLM in a Nutshell

https://alexanderjhay.medium.com/the-ideologies-of-antifa-and-blm-in-a-nutshell-1251be307d79

Both ANTIFA and BLM are inspired by Leftwing Marxist teachings but they are not identical. ANTIFA is a ‘traditional’ Stalinist/Leninist Marxist revolutionary movement that seeks to create a Utopian Socialist state by creating a conflict between the working class and the capitalists through a class war. BLM is a Neo-Marxist revolutionary movement that seeks to create a Utopian socialist inspired world by creating multiple cleavages between races, ethnic groups, religions, and economic and cultural backgrounds through a race war.

The differences between ANTIFA and BLM are subtle but they are not insignificant.

Don’t be terribly surprised when you talk to your friends in ANTIFA and BLM and they do not share the above described ideological beliefs. Most Marxist movements do not spend a lot of time on ideological issues other than creating a basic belief system among followers that is inspirational and actionable. Most of the ANTIFA and BLM ‘activists’ you meet in the street know very little about their own movements. And that is how the leaders want it to stay.

ANTIFA sees the creation of a traditional Communist State run by the Party on egalitarian grounds without any future racial, ethnic, religious or other differences between peoples. BLM sees a very different world where the past oppressors are punished, preferably to extinction, and the new world will based upon those very racial, ethnic, and religious differences that are supposed to be eliminated in traditional Marxist ideology.

I mentioned before that an Antifa organization by that name was cited in a book by a German general related to his stay in Soviet confinement after the war.  They were attempting to get German prisoners to "convert" for better treatment, and then be sent to East Germany.

I think some of the current ones are anarchists.

Whether they have philosophical or political differences doesn't matter the outcome is the same.

Riot, burn, loot, pillage and commit acts of violence against those who oppose them.

There is some evidence that BLM, as a group, is now more interested in extortion than much else.  The looters that show up at night at many protests are apparently interested in the same thing, but using different means.  Not everyone at a riot has any affiliation with BLM obviously.  

Antifa strikes me as more interested in destruction and mayhem than money at this point.
